have a plan to make anything better at the state or local. >> eliot: so good luck to you. as a voter which guy would you go for? >> look, i don't think that romney's rhetoric really is that. he may think that we need more efficiently or spend their money and i think we should. i think to the extent we can do that at the state and local level, we're all better off. the reality is going to hit all of us. that we're borrowing 40 cents of every dollar. we've got to do something to make things better. financially in this country. that's the reality. the republicans and democrats are going to face. it then becomes a question of how do you do that. >> cenk: michael brown former fema direct o under george w. bush. thank you so much for joining us. we really do appreciate it. >> thank you guys. good conversation. >> cenk: thank you. and when we come back, well, obviously i'm not buying what the republicans are selling and i'm about to show you why you shouldn't be buying it either. i'm going to show you lie after lie after lie that's been going on in this campaign. it is not even! they lie so

nashville and new hampshire reminded voters of fees that went up while romney was the governor of massachusetts. >> he raised fees to get a birth certificate which would have been expensive for me. >> reporter: afterwards, he made a stop at a common man's pub. >> to america. doesn't matter what party. >> and already this once in a lifetime storm has significantly affected the campaign. with romney and obama canceling 18 events. and as you mentioned, president obama just announced he will no longer appear at this orlando rksz florida, rally. he's trying to get ahead of the weather, fly back to washington and monitor hurricane sandy. >> and will not be in wisconsin tomorrow. let's get back to sam. >> another rainmaker on a different coast today. into the northwest today, 2 to 5 inches of rain with this system coming on shore there. it's real soccer. it gets in soaker. there is that area, two, three, up to five inches of rain. into northern idaho, there are flood watches and warnings. l.a. showing off at 82 degrees. it's pleasant in albuquerque at 81. >> and we are live in lower manh

disadvantage when it comes to voter enthusiasm. it's very possible that romney can make up what he lacks in organization just by having the enthusiasm of republicans behind him. but the organization can be a boost, especial until an election as close as the one that we're seeing, where it really, at least in the popular vote, may be a tie. having a boost of a point or two can make a big difference. host: next up, pittsburgh, pennsylvania, on our line for democrats. go ahead. caller: oh, hey, how you doing? thanks for taking my call. i wanted to just say that, with the international union being majority democratic, they would be assisting barack obama in a large way. but my question also to the young lady on the panel is that , i was wondering how this fares with the electoral college. because a lot of us voters, we don't even know who the electoral college is. we don't know -- we never elected them. we didn't pick them. and yet they decide who's going to be the president. host: talk to us about the union organization and how this primarily goes for democrats. what does the republican par

packs come in with millions and millions. that's about shrinking the electorate, distancing voters from politics. >> let me argue with this idea for a second. here is the number of obama and romney field offices in swing states. what you see, the theme here, the blue bars, there are many more obama offices around. full disclosure, my brother is an organizer on the campaign for five years. he started in 2007 and is now a state director in nevada. i see it through his eyes. there's a degree, when it functions best, there's a feedback. if you have people going to the doors every day and doing constant focus grouping and constant interactions with voters to see what's moving them, that's democracy at its core. if you are finding when you go to the doors, women age 20 to 35 really are worried about birth control and access to it. then, what you see is that moves the way the president talks. >> it's too cold. it's too cold. it's chilling. it's like the big ad corporations. what you want to do is get a feel for the electorate long before it's election time. then provide the kind of leadership

bill clinton and singer dave matthews. the president and mitt romney are both covering a lot of ground this weekend trying to motivate voters. they both used yesterday's jobs report as proof that they would be the best choice to be commander-in-chief. >> we learned the companies hired more workers in october than in any time in the last eight months. >> we learned that it is actually 7.9%. that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. >> romney will also be traveling to the commonwealth before tuesday's election. he has a rally scheduled for monday afternoon at george mason university. >>> today is the last chance for many local voters wanting to cast a ballot before election day to head to the polls. it is the final day for early voting in all eight of d.c.'s wards and also the last day to cast an in person absentee ballot in virginia. meantime early voting for people in maryland ended yesterday. virginians have plenty to vote for on tuesday. one issue is question one. a ballot measure concerning eminent domain. northern virginia bureau chief julie carey had the details on what thi

supporters can still get engaged. you saw even this year when the romney felt like all the polls were against them but his supporters have gotten much more engaged in the days since then. i'm not sure the polls are driving voters in any particular way. >> so help me out here. let's look at some of the latest polls. national poll here, the national poll, this is a 49%, romney, 48%, president obama. does a national poll really mean anything because the swing states are what counts, we hear. georgia's going to be red. we know what column it's going in. it's a swing state, especially with the electoral college, does the national poll mean anything? >> national poll gives you the sense of an ebb and flow in a campaign. whether the debates or events had an effect. typically states will all sort of move together one direction or another. whether that's the case this year, you could make the argument that ohio, florida, wisconsin and nevada are all very different states but the general temperature of the campaign, i think, is best shown in those broader national polls. >> so in the swing

country's got serious and unresolved problems. >> the voter out there only has a choice, therefore, betw tn two insufficient possibilities.n >> b they t know that governor romney will cut more and obama will tax that's a certain inference. >> on your point, i was surprised that when paul ryan said what he did to joe biden that, you know, "we can work together." and when romney runs, romney has a new ad out sayinge can work better with congress than obama has, that somebody didn't point ut that this is an obstructionist republican ut majority in the house. >> i think that's because obama is in a trap. he has paintehimself into a corner, which makes him vulnerabin to the charge, which has been heard increasingly often, that you don't know what obama's going to do in his second term, that he doesn't have an agenda, that only the past he's willing to talk about, at was a failure. and he can't tell you because it's not going to be good.s i think the problem obama has is that he can tell part of the stor thanks to bill clinton, whichsts, "they gave me a problem and i stopped what

percent of new jersey, i lived in new jersey, is without power. that is a lot of angry potential voters if he does not get something done. so i think he is putting policy and his own politics temporarily ahead of mitt romney's. gerri: fascinating to watch, and i could not help but think maybe romney will have some kind of response down the line to governor christie. to you. you said that politicking never really ended. the conventional restaurant is that all politics ceased during the storm. you said, no. >> it didn't really. you had romney having events collecting, donated goods for those hurricane victims. that is politicking. he is showing a fall faced effort to help victims in the only way that he can't. president obama actually get there as president doing what presidents do, and that is aide with resources during times like this. so i don't think the politicking release stocks. you had the obama administration , his campaign, his surrogates. this election did not stop. down and not to, but it did not stop. gerri: which brings up the question, who gets the momentum now? coming into th
